Thompson Takes On Season's Last Major

by Roz Roberts III

Tomorrow, Michael Thompson will tee off in this season's last major:  the PGA Championship.  This year's PGA will take place at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY.  The Donald Ross designed course is a classic par 70 and will look a lot like a US Open as the rough has been described as "penal".  There has been a lot of talk that a score of par may win.  That remains to be seen but Oak Hill is expected to play tough and that's typically the kind of course and tournament Michael likes.

Michael will be playing the first two rounds with Marcel Siem and Bo Van Pelt.  They get their first round off at 7:50am ET.

There won't be Shot Link coverage this week (since that is a PGA Tour feature) but the PGA website will have live streaming coverage of the par 3 holes starting at 1pm ET.
